Balustrading is an important safety feature for the construction of any building but that doesn’t mean it has to serve a purely functional purpose. Balustrading itself can enhance a building’s aesthetics and whether used in arrangement with timber or metal, or as a stand-alone material, can add to the value of a building. AGP Architectural Glass Projects is endowed with knowledge essential for designing balustrades to meet clients’needs. They also comply with the strict safety standards of Australia. Materials used for making balustrades include brass, glass, stainless steel, and steel, supporting the glass in glass fin type balustrades.

The Fullview Series of Operable Glass Facades are 100% supported by glass fins with the objective of providing unobstructed vision and optimum clarity. This concept was used by Renzo Piano, an Italian architect working on the Macquarie Apartments in Sydney. This building is the only one of its kind: a glass façade that has been motorised to completely open up a room in great weather and protect against unsuitable environments. These louvres are capable of opening and closing in just 5 seconds. Noise arising out of city traffic can also be eliminated.

Fineline XP Operable Glass Facades can help a great deal in enhancing existing facades, with extra protection features added to create a system that is better suited to protect against inclement weather when compared to standard glass louvre systems on the market. Fineline XP Operable Louvre blades are usually composed of toughened glass of 12 mm that seal vertically by closing onto bulb seals which run the full-length of mullions. The system can also achieve horizontal weather protection between every louvre blade by fitting a bulb seal over the bottom edge of every louvre blade.

AGP Fineline Series operable glass facades has been favoured by various architects in numerous apartment buildings to ensure a striking and clean appearance along with functionality. Louvres facilitate use and enjoyment of balcony spaces all year round, assuring protection and safety from the weather. They are actively supported by vertical aluminium mullions with operating mechanisms, with a clearance of 20mm between mullions and louvres. The result is a frameless, clean, glass louvre façade that will look great and work reliably for years to come.

*Holmesglen Institute of TAFE Bridges, VIC by WMCQ Architects*

The brief for this project called for two weatherproof pedestrian bridges to connect four existing student and administration buildings, across an existing road. It also required a semi-transparent cladding material, to reduce the requirement for daytime lighting. Continuous 12 metre lengths of Danpalon 8mm Multicell polycarbonate in 3 different colours (Clear, Bronze and Heatstop) provided the ideal design solution, utilising Danpalon’s easy installation method, flexibility in tight curves, wide colour range and insulative properties.

*FEATURES*
Semi-transparent: reduces artificial lighting needs during the day, radiates light at night + Can be used as a feature wall/panel
with bright colours and/or graphics + Good thermal insulative properties – reduces the need for artificial heating/cooling + Strong yet lightweight + A wide range of colours, finishes, thicknesses and lengths + Easy to install modular system + Enhanced UV protection

*Surf Street House, Merricks Beach, VIC by Campbell Drake of Chameleon Architecture*

Chameleon Architecture recently created this distinctive holiday house near Hastings in Victoria, using Danpalon 16mm Ice for a feature wall. The choice was driven by new BCA energy efficiency requirements, the desire for privacy, thermal protection and translucent daylight. The Danpalon aesthetic was another major factor in the selection. This unique appearance was enhanced with this use of laser-cut graphics of tea tree grove silhouettes applied on the inside face of the Danpalon panels. During the day, they are discreet and barely visible; when back-lit at night, they add a sense of real drama to the home.

*Oceanfront House, Coogee, NSW by Rolf Ockert Design Architects*

In this project, Rolf Ockert Design Architects chose Danpalon as a screen to divide two internal courtyards. Using the inherent advantages of Danpalon, the screen allows comfortable diffused light into the second southern courtyard, while giving a sense of privacy and creating a modern appearance. Easy to install and low-maintenance, Danpalon was the perfect choice for this courtyard setting.

*Zero Emission Office Building, Coffs Harbour, NSW by Reiner Schimminger of Schimminger Architects*

The core idea of this project was to design and construct a small ‘Zero Emission’ office building, to show that such a goal is both attainable and affordable. A year into its occupation, and the building is a resolute success. As intended, electricity consumption is 25 kWH/sqm per annum, well below the average for an office building of the same size; net import from the grid was 1209 kWH (100% ‘green power’, to be reduced in the future by the addition of solar cells); and greenhouse gas emissions were calculated at zero. The north and south façades are made from 65% Danpalon Multicell 10mm Reflective Grey, with the remaining 35% made from Pilkington Evergreen clear glazing in fixed and louvred panels: a combination that admits enough daylighting for the offices to operate entirely without artificial lighting throughout the day.

*HOBART AIRPORT, TASMANIA*
The baggage makeup hall developed for Stage 3 of Hobart International Airport’s redevelopment is a large volume, requiring a bold formal expression of the functional space within. HASSELL’s vision of a glowing box provides a stunning view for passengers arriving at night, and allows them to glimpse shadowy movements of people and baggage within. Throughout the day the baggage hall is bathed in diffused natural light, whilst excluding direct sunlight and heat penetration, thus reducing the need for internal lighting and artificial cooling.

*BARCODE RECALL STORAGE FACILITY, GREYSTANES*
Designed to hold over 6 million A3 cardboard archive boxes, the Lacoste + Stevenson designed Recall Storage Facility would be little more than your gardenvariety warehouse without its trademark “barcode” façade, courtesy of Danpalon polycarbonate cladding panels. The building is clad in alternating panels and digitalstyle numerals along its massive exterior. As a result, the structure portrays a sense of playfulness and edginess – not something one would ordinarily associate with a storage warehouse.

*LAKE AINSWORTH SPORTS SHED*
This multi-purpose recreation hall is designed for various sports, as well as meetings, films and theatrical performances, owing much of its versatility to its custom-produced Danpalon glazing system from Danpalon, which incorporates programmed louvres and can be opened at both ends to provide ventilation. The entire structure glows like a delicate oriental lantern at night, and there is no need for artificial lighting during the day. Michael Heenan, Director of Allen Jack+Cottier described the concept thus: “This is really about light – the skin of the building is perfectly smooth…it is as if the building itself does not exist, it is pure reflected light, standing in a stark landscape”, he said.
